Blessing Nah top-scored for Highway Kings with 16 points in the losing effort.

The win showcased their grit and determination. They battled through a tough shooting night, capitalizing on their hustle and second-chance points. Highway Kings, on the other hand, will be looking to shake off the opening night rust and find their shooting touch.

The excitement doesn’t stop here! Up next for Vision Shooters is a clash against G-Highlanders this Thursday. Can they maintain their winning momentum? Meanwhile, Highway Kings face their city rivals T.S. Warriors in a highly anticipated matchup – a game predicted to be a real nail-biter!
